Traveling to China – COVID-19 Updates

China has a deep, rich history and many beautiful natural sights to see. For many years, there has been a lot of travel to and from China and the US. In China, you can expect something of a culture clash, but for many travelers that is all part of the experience. It is also one of the most important parts of the world for business travelers – and this is unlikely to change at any point in the near future.

In the past year, it has also obviously become associated with the covid-19 virus, and understandably many people are concerned about the prospect of traveling there. But if you need to, or you are planning for the future, you will need to know about the latest travel updates. Let’s take a look at them right now.

Level 3

As of now, however, the US has reduced China from Level 4 to Level 3. This means that travel to China is strongly discouraged, with people being asked to reconsider travel to China. Essentially, you should not go to China unless you absolutely have to go – that is the prevailing advice right now. At the same time, the CDC has China at Level 1, meaning there is a low level of catching or spreading covid-19 if you go there.

As you can see, the advice can differ, and it is not necessarily straightforward. The main thing is to do what makes you feel safe, and consider your options based on what you feel you need to do.

Can Americans Enter?

According to the US embassy in China, US citizens who have the appropriate and correct visas can enter China, but only under certain strict conditions. Regardless of whether you are able to go, if you do go you will need to fall in line with a few other regulations which have been put into place too. Specifically, you will need to have PCR testing done, and IGM antibody tests too, which must take place in your city of departure.


After you have arrived in China, you will also need to quarantine for 14 days. This is compulsory, and the sanctions for not following the law are extremely strict, so there is really no point in putting yourself in that danger. You should absolutely follow the rules if you plan to travel to China, to avoid putting yourself in trouble.
